Next steps after you have received a call from Admissions confirming your grades

Step 1

Once we have received your grades and your place at University College Birmingham is confirmed, you will be asked to upload evidence of your ID (see below for guidance on what will be required) plus a photo for your ID card.

For identification, you will need to upload a copy of the following:

UK/EEA Nationals

  • British or EU Passport, or
  • European Identity Card, or
  • If you do not have a passport, please upload your:
    - birth certificate and
    - another form of photo ID, such as a driving licence or proof of age card*

*Please note that we may ask for additional evidence before we can complete your enrolment.

Non-UK/EEA Nationals

  • A non-UK/EEA passport and:
    - your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) or
    - visa document or
    - Home Office letter confirming your residency status in the UK
  • If you are an asylum seeker, please upload your Application Registration Card.
  • If you don’t have any documentation to confirm your immigration status in the UK, University College Birmingham will ask for your permission to request this information from the Home Office.

For all students:

Please note: if your name is now different from the name on the documentation above, please also upload evidence to support your name change, e.g. deed poll document or marriage certificate. All our systems will use the name on your official documentation.

Step 2

  • Our Finance and Student Records Team will then review your enrolment details to decide if any fees may need to be paid, or whether we need any further information from you. For example, if you are over 19 and enrolled onto a further education course, we will need to make sure we have seen the relevant evidence to waiver tuition fees if this is possible.
  • Once you have uploaded your ID and photo and we have checked that you are not required to pay fees (or confirmed your loan is in place, for those who need a loan), you will automatically be enrolled.
  • You will then receive an email confirming you have completed enrolment.

If we require further information then we will contact you either by phone or email and discuss this with you. You may be asked to provide further evidence before your enrolment is considered complete. Once we are satisfied that everything is complete, we will send a confirmation email. Please be patient, we will respond to your query as soon as possible.
